In this edition of Dub-Dub-Dub (as in Double WW for Workout Wednesday)…

I’ll start this 1K series: sets of 1,000 reps that target major muscle groups! It can help if you hit a plateau and need a pick-me-up to boost your routine! If you can do this many in one sitting, then you’ll be able to do smaller sets, as long as you set aside time!

The first one is for legs. I did 1,000 squats 10 days ago. YES, 1K in one day (actually, they lasted me 1/2 an hour)!

Here’s how I did them:

* I mixed up the stances to maintain momentum (i.e., hip/shoulder-width, wide, narrow, sumo, plié)

* I added arms to also tone up my upper bod 💪

* I stayed soft on my knees & never locked them out

… & I finished strong!

Reminder: Please stretch before and after.

Disclaimer: Plus, be prepared to be sore if you haven’t worked these muscles in awhile!

Next up: 1K Arms then one more for Core!
